EVERY MATERIAL, EVERY SCULPTURAL ELEMENT IN OUR SURFACES COLLECTION HAS BEEN CAREFULLY PROCURED, DESIGNED AND HAND-CRAFTED to elicit a reaction of delight. Above all else, the rule is authenticity, authenticity of materials and of design. This rule is essential to our way of seeing things and allows us to assign each material a unique role—one that respects its original nature and identity. Founder Thierry François has scoured the cities and countryside of Europe for decades in search of the best wood, stone work and reclaimed materials available. Learning the origin of each piece, taking in the history and culture of a region, and hand-selecting extraordinary Wood, Stone and Terra Cotta has been an endless journey, a treasure hunt that has led to a collection deeply rooted in quality and fine craftsmanship.
